  • Make a difference: You have an unusual hobby or background? You have an interesting story to share that emphasizes your personality? Take the chance and try to leave an impression.
  • Show your motivation: We are looking for candidates with a high level of passion and interest, with a hands-on approach and who are prepared to put in the effort to make the most of their career. Present yourself in an inspiring way to highlight your passion for the job.
  • Be authentic: Honesty and openness are more important to us than superficialities. Show us who you really are and give us the chance to find out if the job and the team fit to you.
  • Ask questions: Show an interest in your potential superior. His or her way of talking, explaining and describing the work says much about his or her leadership style. Listening and re-phrasing shows not only understanding but also your motivation and efforts to get the job.
